PMC - Full Metal Jacket - 55 Grain 5.56x45mm Ammo - 1000 Rounds


In the 1950’s the US military began its search for a new standard military round to supplement the newly adopted 7.62x51 NATO. The goal was to find a cartridge with similar effectiveness at range yet be much more manageable for sustained automatic fire from hand held service rifles by individual soldiers. The result was the .223 Remington, which was shortly after up-pressured to become the current 5.56mm NATO round. While physically very similar to the .223 and able to be chambered in those chambers, this round should not be fired in .223 chambered firearms. PMC’s X-Tact 55 grain full metal jacket rounds exit the muzzle at 3240 feet per second with 1306 foot pounds of energy. This 1000 round case lot is ideal for keeping on hand for training day, competitions or for any number of “what if” scenarios.

PMC is an ammunition provider to both commercial markets as well as the military of South Korea. Their exacting standards and quality control begin all the way down to selecting the ore used in their boxer primed, fully reloadable cases. The X-Tact line is advertised as their premium defense and performance ammunition, capable of meeting the strict demands of professional service members and competitors alike.
